Fox has dropped the first trailer for Rio, from the makers of their Ice Age films. This one has got more color -- and human beings -- to it than the earlier prehistoric films director Carloa Saldanha has made.
The studio describes the movie as such: "Rio is a 3-D animation feature from the makers of the Ice Age films. Set in the magnificent city of Rio de Janeiro and the lush rainforest of Brazil, the comedy-adventure centers on Blu, a rare macaw who thinks he is the last of his kind. When Blu discovers there’s another — and that she’s a she — he leaves the comforts of his cage in small town Minnesota and heads to Rio. But it’s far from love at first sight between the domesticated and flight-challenged Blu and the fiercely independent, high-flying female, Jewel. Unexpectedly thrown together, they embark on an adventure of a lifetime, where they learn about friendship, love, courage, and being open to life’s many wonders. Rio brings together a menagerie of vivid characters, a heart-warming story, colorful backdrops, energizing Latin and contemporary music, and family-friendly song and dance."
The film features the voice talents of Anne Hathaway, George Lopez, Jake T. Austin, Rodrigo Santoro and Neil Patrick Harris. Is that also Jessie Eisenberg I hear as Blu or do my ears deceive me?
